Hi there!..any nurses here working in Vancouver?..I'm planning to migrate to Canada from the UK.Any idea which hospital you think is the best to work in?.I've heard about Vancouver general hospital, which I believe is one of the busiest hospitals in this area.I just need to know the nurse patient ratio if you are working in the acute ward.And I'm also wondering if a nurse can afford the cost of living like buying a nice 3-4 bedroom house and a good car in the future.I wish to stay in Canada for good so I hope you could help.Thanks a lot:wink2:

Not sure if it were Vancouver you were specifically thinking of relocating to, but
It enabled me to access all the main health authorities. I chose Providence Healthcare as my 1st of 3 preferences. I had a casual pre-screen phone call (to determine exactly which hospital and area I wanted), then I had an interview and a job offer all within 3 weeks of submitting my C.V online. (At the time of the interview I was booked in and awaiting to sit the Canadian RN Exam).
I find the patient-nurse ratios similar in Australia. Quality of life here in Canada is just as wonderful, if not better.
